I am looking to parse the body of a folder of email possibly via outlook or outlook express (but from what I understand outlook must be used in this case). The email should only be parsed if the subject has a certain title in it. While parsing the program will save any data that it needs to save in some variables which will later be printed out in a .txt file. My question is should I try to interact directly with outlook or should I just I bypass outlook altogether and instead create my own mapi session to interact with the program. If anyone has any sample code on how to do either of these two things or knows of a good tutorial that could help me out in this area (i have already read the MSDN concerning MAPI and am still fuzzy on this topic) I would appreciate it.
